Michael McDonald Hoping For Early 2015 Return

Former UFC bantamweight title contender, Michael McDonald is apparently targeting an early 2015 return to the octagon after being off all of 2014 due to a series of injuries.

McDonald’s stated hand and wrist surgeries kept him out of action for over a year.

Once considered a phenom at 135 pounds, McDonald last fought in December 2013, when Urijah Faber choked him out to cap a one-sided beating. An August win over Brad Pickett served as a cushion between losses; McDonald fell in February by submission to Renan Barao after a prolonged battle for the then-interim UFC bantamweight belt.
